"Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30

Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther shared some still applicable advice when he and his people were dealing with a critical health crisis: "I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence." Luther's Works Volume 43 page 132

We share deep longing for, and anticipation of, the day when we can return to fellowship as a faith community - face to face and in person!
